    Oh these ones. I've seen these everywhere, but they require soldering to the motherboard. Do you have another use for them?

    They will get terminals soldered on and used as an adapter.

    Progress!
    Screen is now in place awaiting the brackets,all painted and looking rather spiffing.

    And the airbrush stencil has arrived!

    Stencil Warehouse turned these around in a day and were cheap,I recommend if anyone is looking for that kind of service.
    So the IO plate on the front needed to be Spectracoated too.

    And finally finished the storage mounts.

    Later today will be spent fitting the rads and fans in place and start looking at the tubing runs in the ped,the drain needs fitting thru the ped endpanel and I need to look at the wiring loom for the fans and the screen.


    ......I cant stop looking at the screen,it looks like it was made for it in that pedestal.

    Looks great man.

    The screen fitting is top notch. Looks like it came from the factory like that.

    I did try doing it by hand Huk but you know what its like with close set parallel lines...it looked good but you would catch it a certain angle then you could see the 'wibble' in the lines.

    I caved and got Nate to lazor me it instead,now it looks spot on!

    Liking how the paint turned out on this, I'm betting it looks better than what the camera can pick up ?

    Another Breakfast of Champions!

    Today was fit the Bitspower block day,ready for testing and review.

    [​IMG]

    Choose your weapon!
    The CLU is for the delid after the review for a second run with the delid and the block for self comparative testing.

    [​IMG]

    I used the Gelid for the SB and CPU,its a nice paste that performs well...still got my trusty MX2 as a standby tho.

    Some shots of the VRM section and the SB.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And installed!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This wasnt the chore i thought i might be,sometimes blocks require you to have the 3 hands,this wasnt too bad at all. One thing i would of liked is a full backplate for this block,just to spread the load a little,the screws are not wide headed and the cooler holes are wide. Maybe I should get one machined......

    The board looks mint now,looking forward to the testing!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Now im looking to make a cover,a la Rampage style,covering the whole rear I/O. That should tidy that whole silver thing ASUS have going on.

    Playing with the camera today...

    I still suck at it...


    SSD in.....

    [​IMG]

    Noticed a nice little touch with the enterprise drives....

    [​IMG]

    It has a nice machined edge on it,once i ditch the stickers this will look nice with the flat top being engraved perhaps,rather than the painted cover I had planned....

    MOAR block!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And a view thru the Trapdoor....cos there is something down there....
